A wonderful heartfelt review of The Heart Stone Chronicles: The Swamp Fairy from Linda. My heart is full! ❤

swamp%20fairy%20ad%20with%20birdI was transported back to a joy I haven’t experienced since my earliest enthralling reading days, a fairy-tail so believable I couldn’t forget it.  Colleen’s characterizations of Abby and her animal friends made me feel just as I did as a child, in love with animals and the unseen world.  I can’t recommend this book highly enough.  I felt as though I experienced things I miss from my life now.  I took the liberty of including other reviews.  I am not the only one loving this book.

How Much Viking Lore Is True?

A great article about one of my favorite myths: The Vikings and Norse Gods. ❤ Archaeologists have confirmed key details in Norse oral histories (but not the dragons, elves, and trolls). Source: How Much Viking Lore Is True?

Compared to some, I’ve lived an exciting life. At least parts of it were. However, compared to others, my life has been humdrum. The only thing I’m satisfied about is that all the drama took place when I was young and able to handle it. That would not be the reality today for I have grown old.

It’s confession time. I’m not looking for absolution. My only intent is to show some of you out there that there is hope. Nothing is forever. Perhaps my story might help you get to the next stage of your life. Maybe not, but I had help getting there, and I’ll tell you about it in a minute. First, a little background. And please, feel free to judge me. You cannot condemn me any more than I have already condemned myself.

When I was kid, I always had a wanderlust. I would see a…

I also used the photo as my inspiration. ❤ Don't be … Continue reading The Golden Star Child – A #Tanka
